What about "Something Kinda Funky" from BUCK ROGERS, and "It's Love, Love, Love" from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA? Skipping those would be crazy.

Hahaha! Yes! I can well imagine Starbuck as their talent agent.

ROBERT PRINCE; His score sets for "Wonder Women" "Bionic Women" Newman's Law and Ironside were dymamite. DANA KAPROFF for "The Amazing Spider-Man and Exo-Man. MARTY PAICH: scores for Ironside were as funky as you can possibly get. WILLIAM LOOSE: Bummer
LEE HOLDRIDGE; for his 3 scores he did for "McCloud tv series 72/73. Also check out JIMMIE HASKELL's mega long action packed chase funk cue from the film "Outrage" 1973..ooft

*None of the above with the exeption of Wonder Women have been released.

No composer in the history of music knew better how to get funky then Geert van Schlänger. If you know what I mean.

Charles Bernstein got a mention earlier. I need to cite his Mr. Majestyk, some of the finest movie funk I've heard all fall.

Oh yes - Charles Bernstein. Thank you.

Two others are Jerry Fielding ....

While I didn't care for his big band ensembles playing lots of improv for the Clintwood movies in the 70's, I do agree they were funky.

Alex North!

North collaborated with Band leader Robbie Robertson to score CARNY (1980) which is definitely a funky soundtrack (check out North's composition "Lust" for example).

North also scored 1979's WISE BLOOD for Jhon (sic) Huston.

Derek Wadsworth made Space funky like it's 1999. And much props to Andrew Belling for brining the funk to Wizards.

I recently picked.up Daniel Pemberton's Man from Uncle. Totally funky, hip and cool. And I like it.

“Because ‘funky’ is the foremost adjective when describing film composers beloved by the typical FSMer.” [see also: “Hans Zimmer”]
